Falls Church, VA – An Inova study of COVID-19 patients sheds light on how patients have responded to advanced ICU interventions. Researchers sought to paint a realistic picture of survival expectations within a single, well-resourced healthcare system, over the patient’s entire length of stay.

Christopher King, MD, transplant pulmonologist and critical care physician at Inova Fairfax Hospital, was principal investigator on the study of 164 patients who were mechanically ventilated at any of the five Inova hospitals in Northern Virginia. His findings were recently published on PLOS One.
